Pinguicula gigantea red is a tropical species of carnivorous plant, this plant turns red/brownish under intense light and it can reach up to 7-8" under the right care.
You'll get a similar plant to the ones in the pictures. Please note that some plants are greener than others but will turn pinkish/reddish under intense light. You'll get a plant similar to the one in picture #2 (a plant that is not red completely), put it under a full spectrum light to achieve the coloration of the mother plant (plant in picture #1).
The plants are shipped bare root in a plastic container to protect the plants. We ship the plants on Monday and Wednesday to avoid the weekend cut off.
Medium plants are about 1" in diameter
Large plants are about 2" in diameter
